Low Temperature Laboratory

The Low Temperature Laboratory at Aalto University is one of the world centres in ultra low temperature physics and technology. The leading position is based on vigorous in-house development and construction of sub-mK refrigerators.

The Low Temperature Laboratory is administered by the Department of Applied Physics. It is part of the national Otaniemi Research Infrastructure for Micro- and Nanotechnologies, OtaNano, and partner in the European Microkelvin Platform. Read more about us and find out how to contact us through the links below.

Facilities

The Low Temperature Laboratory has advanced sub-Kelvin refrigeration facilities: two sub-mK (unique rotating cryostat and world record stationary cryostat) and more than 10 dilution refrigerators aimed for different type of experiments.
